At the time of writing this article, the famous Irish pub in the old town has just reopened its doors in the Grand Rue, on the former premises of Flanagan’s which has been refurbished. Resplendent! It kept the elegance and the atmosphere of an old pub. The woodwork has been painted emerald green and the drinks have been revised. The dark brightness due to the low ceiling adds to the authenticity of the place, deftly avoiding a gloomy tone.
The very first reason to go is to escape from the Genevois attitude, practice your English and participate in the cosy evenings of the pub.
The second one is that the burgers are hearty and delicious. Fish & chips, hot dogs, animal style fries, nachos and other pub specialities can also keep company to your beer, cider or kir.
Finally, the concerts (especially traditional Irish music) are provided in the basement! So if you are like me and you are running after music (and trust me, my sneakers never wear out in Geneva), you will soon discover the HQ of the expat community. Sláinte!
PS: A second door to the narrow Cheval Blanc street allows you to use a different exit…
